Interview with Mustafa Barghouti and Anna Baltzer


“Palestinian equal rights was placed directly next to health care and the economy on The Daily Show’s progressive agenda and the audience was totally along for the ride.  I could hardly believe my eyes, and yet it made perfect sense at the same time.  Who can argue that it is necessary to deny people water?  Who can argue against equal rights?  The answer is increasingly no one, and if The Daily Show’s audience is any indication, the next generation will be leading this fight in a much different direction.” — Adam Horowitz, 29 October 2009

“We’re also hearing that The Daily Show is getting slammed by angry responses to the show.  Please write them and thank them for bringing on such important voices, and encourage them to feature more!” — Adam Horowitz, 29 October 2009.

The interview was aired on 28 October 2009.
